La Crêperie Bretonne

Crêpes are almost synonymous to France for many people. When tourists think of crêpes, they think of stands next to the Notre Dame where they get their fix with nutella, bananas, and strawberries. What people aren't aware of, is that crêpes are more than just snacks in the western region of France. They make up full meals, with savory crêpes filled with meat, veggies, even seafood, and dessert crêpes that are out of the world!

The Montparnasse area is Paris is where you will find streets lined with crêperies. The reason being, the Montparnasse train station services trains that go to the western region of France. Over the years, many Bretons (people from Brittany) have settled in this area, hence the abundance of crêperies in Montparnasse.

One of our favorites is La Crêperie Bretonne. We stumbled across this crêperie when our ex-favorite made us wait too long. It was a blessing in disguise, as this little family run restaurant is great, and even accepts debit cards (many don't). You may have to stand a little in line regardless if it happens to be a warm summer day. People flock crêperies because they offer great meals at a little price. A simple crêpe should cost no more than €5,00 and other specialty crêpes no more than €11,00.

If you happen to take my advice and come here (you should!) do order for dessert a caramel beurre salé (if you have a sweet tooth) or the crêpe with cream of speculoos. You will not regret it!
